Registration is now open for an upcoming webinar hosted by the American National Standards Institute Nanotechnology Standards Panel (ANSI-NSP). The webinar, which will take place on Thursday, October 10, 2013, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT, will provide an introduction to the ANSI-NSP Nanotechnology Standards Database. This database is a powerful new tool that is intended to serve as a free, comprehensive resource for individuals and groups worldwide seeking information about standards and other relevant documents related to nanomaterials and nanotechnology.
The creation of the database is part of a larger ongoing effort by the ANSI-NSP and its members and partners to bolster the visibility of existing and in-development nanotechnology guidance documents, best practices, and standards. To make the database relevant to the needs of the user community and help it grow, SDOs, government bodies, and other stakeholder organizations are encouraged to contribute information about their current and in-progress documents and projects. Organizations are required to register before submitting.
The October 10 webinar will cover the various ways that the database can be effectively used by groups and individuals as a resource, and will provide information about the short-term and long-term goals associated with the creation of the database.
There is no charge to take part in the webinar, which is open to all interested parties worldwide; however, advance registration is required. To register for the webinar, click here.
